The media is turning on President Obama

By Michael Goodwin

New York Post April 27/2014

http://nypost.com/2014/04/27/the-media-is-turning-on-president-obama/

With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop.

“Obama Suffers Setbacks in Japan and the Mideast,” the paper declared on Friday’s front page. The double whammy of failure pushed the growing Russian menace in ¬Europe to inside pages, but even they were chock-full of reports about utopia gone wrong.

TOPICS: Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: media
Yet it remains a fool’s errand to hope Obama will correct his ways. He is not capable; he looks in the mirror and sees only a savior.

It is equally clear that those who shielded him from facts and their own best judgment did him no ¬favors. Out of fear and favor, they abdicated their duty to the nation, and they must share the burden of history’s verdict. After all, America’s decline happened on their watch, too.

Are you saying that Democrats and The Media will man-up and take responsibility for the failures? Never, ever will that happen. It’ll be more circle-the-wagons and defend tyranny at all costs.

So right. Progressives will choke to death on the truth rather than admit a failure.

It’s a little late now. He will executive order anything that will destroy this country until the election(should there be one in 2016) and then the press will drool over the next liberal candidate.

The American media are corrupt to the core. No chance that they will do their job. I would trust a used car salesman more.

Yeah, really turning on him.

He’s a puppet...a distraction. If the RATs get another in ‘16, the same people will be pulling the strings and the cliff will be a foregone conclusion (if the B0ners of the Hill don’t fully accomplish defeatism on their own before then).

Only the LEFTIST media would claim that reporting the “truth” is turning on Obama.

Well, I guess in a way, it IS!

A purpose of a free press is to hold government accountable, but there is no fallback when the watchdog voluntarily chooses to be a lapdog.

Shame on the MSM... shame on them...

As soon as I hear a meaningful question on Benghazi, or any of the other myriad scandals or failed policy decisions, I will give this claim some consideration. I trust that I will have a very long wait.

I just finished watching a panel on FOX declare a brilliant Obama victory over “racist” Cliven Bundy and how the media should treat Obama with more respect.

Sure the media will 'turn' on him - once it's clear he's more of a liability to the leftist cause than a benefit. That way they think they can keep their credibility and start pimping for CLinton at the same time.

Never assume the news media has a conscience our it's in any way inclined to do the right thing.

This is such scheiss unsin is ever there was some! Did you see the lynchmob they tried to foment against Mr. Bundy? Notice the cowards on the so-called Conservative side who chimed in without listening to or understanding Mr.Bundy's full remarks?

The drive by media is as potent as ever -- even more so!

Your right on target! The fifth-column MSM will defend Traitorobama to the end, just as they have covered for other demonrat traitorous low-life like JFK, Slick Willie, and the current POSOTUS.

Black Soldiers: Cliven Bundy Is Not Racist

“Who the heck are we to determine another man’s perspective on the world around him?!”

Adan Salazar
Infowars.com
April 25, 2014

A black marine who sides with Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy in his dispute with the BLM has posted a diatribe on Facebook defending Bundy’s comments and slamming the corporate media’s coverage as a race baiting distortion designed to create social division.

In his missive, a marine going by the handle Charlie Delta blames the “liberal media” for attempting to paint Bundy as a racist, and says he himself has also wondered “the same about the decline of the black family.”

When asked if he found Mr. Bundy’s comments offensive, six-year Army veteran Jason Bullock replied, “Mr. Bundy is not a racist. Ever since I’ve been here, he’s treated me with nothing but hospitality. He’s pretty much treating me just like his own family.”

“I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather,” Bullock stated. “I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times, I have a really good feel about him and I’m a pretty good judge of character.”

We can only hope the media “turns” on the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut. They may support a palace revolution, but almost all the current cast of characters will remain on stage, and remain assured of a hearty endorsement from the same “Americans in name only” that gave us the state of decay starting with January 2007. It just took them a little longer to complete their coup, in January 2009, but the deck was already stacked. There was a voting majority of Democrats (or independents pretending they were not Democrats) in both the House of Representatives and the Senate in Bush’s last two years in the White House, and they effectively stymied almost every initiative by the Bush Administration.

I mean really ladies and gentlemen. All good comments here but this is just so much drivel. We all know that “if” the MSM give up on Obama it is only because they have found a new leftist, lib, savior that they like even more - at least for the next election - and that cycle has been repeating itself for how long?

Not a chance.

The US media will continue to grovel before Dear Leader’s graven image for the rest of their lives.

They sold their collective souls to their messiah. And he will forever remain the focus of their worship and adoration.

Nothing he does can dissuade them from their willing obeisance. Nothing.

They will turn on 0 only to the extent they think it will help excuse Hillary’s stunning display of incompetence. It’s all about dragging the next leftist nightmare across the finish line.

Slowly the number of stories that the ass media is putting out that advertise his failures as POTUS have been increasing but at a snail’s pace, but has been picking up lately.

It seems as if the Left is finally realizing this guy is a fail from the word, ‘go.’

"From the start, support for Obama often had a cult-like atmosphere. He sensed it, began to believe it and became comfortable demanding total agreement as the price for the favor of his leadership. That he is now the imperial president he used to bemoan is no long­er in dispute. The milking of perks, from golf trips to Florida to European vacations for the first lady, is shockingly vulgar, but not a peep of protest comes from his supporters. The IRS becomes a political enforcer, but that, too, is accepted because nobody will risk their access by telling Obama no. You are either with him or you are his enemy. The evidence is everywhere that his ideas are flawed, that his view of economics, diplomacy, the military, history, science and religion are warped by his own narcissism. He doesn’t even talk a good game anymore. Yet it remains a fool’s errand to hope he will correct his ways. He is not capable; he looks in the mirror and sees only a savior."

What we basically have now is an out of control President who has the emotional maturity of an angry, petulant 6 year old.

We can "thank" the media, the selfish liberals, the godless, and the takers.
